Collab We Love: Matt Bernson x Stripes & Sequins

(Source: Grace Atwood/Instagram)As much as we love heels, our busy lives often demand shoes that we can actually hit the ground running in, and while sneakers have recently earned the fashion stamp of approval, we often find ourselves reaching for a pair of trusty flats. Leave it to Stripes & Sequins blogger Grace Atwood to elevate our go-to footwear with her signature refined yet whimsical aesthetic.

Eventually, it lead to the two collaborating on a seven-piece collection of flats featuring ample sequins and glitter.

You can purchase your own pair from Matt Bernson directly here, or shop select styles at Anthropologie and Shopbop.
